DAILY WORD PROMPT, Life

Ok, hands up …

.... whose Christmas Tree only made it as far as the garden? This is precisely the sort of thing Japanese Monks would not allow to happen. They never allow a no-longer-needed item to merely congregate with further objects of past usage. They give away, recycle, burn, break down. They see items no longer needed by… Continue reading Ok, hands up …

DAILY WORD PROMPT, Flash Fiction

When your heartbeat is the only thing you can hear …

Her feet wouldn't move; welded to the floor they were. She knew she needed to leave the bedroom, wanted to most desperately. But those feet were stuck in mud, or concrete. She looked down to check but the pink socks with the dirty fluffy soles were quite free of shackles. His voice - hoarse from… Continue reading When your heartbeat is the only thing you can hear …

Ben's conversation he shares today illustrates how we can become so embroiled in worries… Continue reading Our own worst enemy ..

Sausage roll anyone?

Bugger ... I only put that in to warm up (two hours ago) ... then started watching the film version of 'me before you'.. based on JoJo's book I finished recently.
